Thomas Milton
Tom Milton did more than just bring aviation into the
classroom. He got kids excited about aviation by setting
up a full-time high school aviation classroom in a hangar
in Chicago. A pilot, aviation mechanic and educator, he
taught aircraft mechanics at the Chicago Vocational
High School. He spent a great deal of his own time
upgrading the World War II era hangar into a modern
classroom, taking students to fly-ins and arranging
introductory flights. Milton was active in the Homewood
Flossmoor Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, teaching
Cadet’s Pilot Ground School and becoming Deputy
Commander of Cadets.
Milton is known locally and nationally for his dedication
to gyroplane safety and education through his work as
a Technical Inspector for the EAA and his affiliation with
the Popular Rotorcraft Association, where he has served
as both an officer and director of his local chapter and
at the national level.
